Show off your RCP application

I think Eclipse RCP is an exciting part of the Eclipse story. The ability to build rich client applications with a component model that allows for dynamic updates of new features and patches is pretty compelling. In fact, I think for ISVs and open software projects it makes an excellent platform for deploying software.

Eclipse Japan

The Eclipse Japan web site just went live on eclipse.org. We are very lucky to have strong support in Japan from some key companies: NTT Comware, Hitachi, Fujitsu, NEC and IBM. I think it is great to have these companies helping provide the Japanese content for eclipse.org.

Today I had the opportunity to listen to a webinar Eclipse Changes the Game for Application Development by Carl Zetie of Forrester Research. Unfortunately I think you need to be a client of Forrester to see the slides but I was lucky enough to be an invited guest.

Brand Hijack

I have just finished reading a new book on branding called Brand Hijack: marketing without marketing, by Alex Wipperfurth. I’m often pretty skeptical about ‘marketing/branding’ books but this one was pretty good. They author was involved with the marketing at Napster but also uses Linux, Apple, and others as case studies. If you are interested in these types of topics I would recommend picking up a copy.

Maybe there is hope?

I just noticed that Tim Boudreau at Sun has taken down his recent blog that was very negative about Eclipse. Seems like he was having a bad day. As someone who on occassion has sent a couple of late night e-mails that I later regret, I can certainly relate. I applaud Tim for taking the high road. Wouldn’t it be nice if the other Sun employee, Charles Ditzel would just show the same amount of integrity.

First, What Really Matters

I am very fortunate to have a professional position which I thoroughly enjoy. Really, not that many people get to have a job that they are really passionate about.

Over time, I expect that this blog will be filled with postings about Eclipse and its various developments. That’s what I do, and that’s my main purpose in writing here.

But I thought that it might be fun to start off my blog talking about the other thing that I am truly passionate about. (Well, OK, my family is truly #1, but that’s a given.)
